Anyway. So Thanksgiving.
We went to my aunt and uncle's place in Mesa. Their whole family was there. It was such a great feeling to be with family. I was sort of depressed thinking we would be feasting on a roasted chicken breast between the four of us. But, Monday she emailed me inviting us to join them for T-day. That's my mom's sister Lark in the red, Craig's taking the picture. Everything was yummy. Craig made a banana cream pie and a Key lime pie to bring to the feast. I brought a baby green salad with pomegranite seeds, candied pecans, and goat cheese and my fresh cranberry "sauce". Then...my cousin Jennifer took Seth and Lucy for the night and the next day until about 4pm!!! Craig and Hazel and I hit the town and had a relaxing day without the older kids. What a treat!
So I rearranged the living room.
This is one of my favorite pastimes. When I do this, which is more often than what would be considered normal, Craig pleasantly helps me shuffle furniture without a word, he has come to accept this bizarre habit of mine. There is something satisfying about sweeping up dust bunnies that thought they would go their whole lives unnoticed. Plus, who wants to look at the same thing day after day?
Well, that's it for now...until my next free 15 minutes or so.
